Post details of your last run and what you think of it
Good work all and have a fab trip baldbloke. 16 miles for me, first half steady, second half easy. Taking a few days off now to recharge and see if I come back fresher.
Went out yesterday at about 5pm for a 4 miler, was ok, tried the same saterday but just couldn't get round! Too hot at around 3 in the afternoon! So for the first time in about 6 months I didn't to a long run at the weekend, but been doing 2 x 10k during the week which is a step up for me.
11 miles to Blundellsands, Burbo Bank & Hightown just after 7am, returning only feet from a gently incoming tide and avoiding the sea fishing tackle by the coastguards'
0630 Running bud back in action - just half an hour, nice n steady, over the coastal park near the Marina and over Chaffers rec. I popped 50% more - 'cos I could!
anyone else wondering what happens to Fudge when Cidlad is in Almeria? can't be many long runs if you're stuck in kennels...
Hills session this evening. Very very hot and humid (still around 33 degrees) but did it. So pleased. Although in a new version of twatty heckles, some teenager came and ran just in front of me and videoed it, shouting "she's chasing me!". Major sense of humour bypass for me...
Stupidly humid here in London, but after the storms of last night, running conditions are slightly better than yesterday. 8 miles along the River Lea for me this morning. Pretty tough.
Rain & some thunder & lightning to go with 5.2 miles at 6.30am today. Similar route to y'day.
Morning running people.
JT - cheers but I guess whatever level you run at, you're always wanting to go faster. If you're knocking off 7.5miles in 54mins in training, you can't be that far away from those sorts of times yourself.
7 ga miles today. Warm, dry but cloudy. Very humid now the real heat has dropped away.
Fresher this a.m. for a similar run to yesterday's
In other news, redundancy turned into redeployment at my present college after interview y'day. I'm now Quality Facilitator: Equality & Diversity Even in my 60th year, I believe I've some more to give to FE & HE. Time will tell....
Much cooler tonight, but still warm & pleasant, and then the heavens opened mid run! It was axquite welcome change though to be fair, but I hope it gets back to nice & sunny sharpish!
A 7km run at my 10k pace tonight (first 2.5km is a fairly steep uphill section). I've been doing this route twice in the mid week for a few weeks & I really enjoy it. Was my first run after a very heavy stag weekend but was finally feeling human again today and the run went really well.
Great news swittle... I too work in a college. Interesting / challenging job for you ahead
Me- 6 miles club run through hot Epping forest. Was a bit of a wimp
Swittel - Well played sir, wish you great luck with the new direction
Just a 5m plod today. Little bit of pain in the knee still after the change of footware so taking it easy at the minute.
Many thanks, Nessie and SB With the uncertainty over, tiredness dogged my steps yesterday but Merseyside was looking its best as run buddy & I enjoyed warm, breezy, sunny weather at 7am for 30 and 45 minutes respectively.
Much appreciated, JT
How do you find the minimalist approach?
7:15am Knocked a minute off last Saturday's 5.2 mile time but I'm sure it *felt* faster.... From the park to Crosby Baths, then trails up Burbo Bank, u-turning at the coastguard station and enjoying firm sand, a light breeze and the warmth in my aged bones!
Did the Swiss Alpine 42k in Davos. My first marathon and a mindblowing experience...scenery was awesome and it is a really inspiring event...future for me is definitely long runs, preferably in places as beautiful as the Alps...time was slow, but it was 30 degrees and there were a couple of huge ascents...and one of the great things about trail marathons is it's not about the clock anyway!
8.5 miles this morning with one of my club members, easy going 8 1/2 mins per mile pace. Was hotter than I was expecting though
